Comment: Was the formation of the Federal Reserve a Conspiracy?

(See in situ)

Was the formation of the Federal Reserve a Conspiracy?

Snakepit22, you are part of liberty movement and be proud of it!

I am too!

And yet, I am a proud Conspiracy Theorist.

I guess the formation of critical thinking early in my childhood is to blame. And a college course on Vietnam, instructed by a Vietnam Vet, didn't help suppress the eventuality, that one day, I would investigate conspiracies. He inspired it, with little known facts about South East Asia, The Golden Triangle and a small air cargo company known as Air America. Yet probably the biggest event that officially started during my lifetime and has provided the biggest inspiration is still going on today. It's the Drug War.

Was I, am I the enemy?
I took the Red Pill!

In 1988, I came across a High Times Magazine and my life changed. There among the pages of Cannabis Sativa and Indica was an article on a man running for President. His name was Ron Paul. As I said, and I believe others understand, when I say this again. My life changed.

Yet this counter-culture periodical was not the only socially conscience magazine of my early adult life, there was of course Penthouse and Hustler floating around. Hell I was an American Boy. But in among those pages of bodacious beauties were articles too. And to counter the social cons on porn, there were controversial political writings as a balance. This fact lead to the Icon status of Larry Flynt, the founder of Hustler and Bob Guccione, founder of Penthouse, into bidding wars for the most hostile stories on corruption in politics. They were going after D.C.

Have you seen "The People vs. Larry Flint"?

In the 90's a book known as "Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras and the Crack Cocaine Explosion" by Gary Webb of San Jose Mercury was released. You may have seen postings on the Daily Paul about it.

(please try and don't forget to donate!)

On Amazon, the introduction is as follows:
"Dark Alliance is a book that should be fiction, whose characters seem to come straight out of central casting: the international drug lord, Norwin Meneses; the Contra cocaine broker with an MBA in marketing, Danilo Blandon; and the illiterate teenager from the inner city who rises to become the king of crack, "Freeway" Ricky Ross. But unfortunately, these characters are real and their stories are true.

In August 1996, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb stunned the world with a series of articles in the San Jose Mercury News reporting the results of his year-long investigation into the roots of the crack cocaine epidemic in America, specifically in Los Angeles. The series, titled "Dark Alliance," revealed that for the better part of a decade, a Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to Los Angeles street gangs and funneled millions in drug profits to the CIA-backed Nicaraguan Contras.

Now Gary Webb has pushed his investigation even further in his book, Dark Alliance: The CIA, The Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion. Drawing from recently declassified documents, undercover DEA audio and videotapes that have never been publicly released, federal court testimony, and interviews, Webb demonstrates how our government knowingly allowed massive amounts of drugs and money to change hands at the expense of our communities."

I am Bay Area native, lived less than hour away from San Jose, and the paper of course hit my door step during those days. CIA running crack through my state. Wow!

Funny thing, Congresswoman Maxine Waters(D) wrote the foreword for the book.
Sad thing, Gary Webb shot himself in the head... Twice.
So they say...

"Facing a barrage of calls from the media and the public, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office issued a statement Tuesday confirming that former investigative reporter Gary Webb committed suicide with two gunshots to the head."

Ad nauseam, throughout the history of Daily Paul, there have been many postings about the book "The Creature from Jekyll Island" and its author G. Edward Griffin. Any fan of the Daily Paul and Capitalism would definitely have this book wouldn't they? A book about the history of the FED?

Have you read it?

How about Cleon Skousen's book "The Naked Capitalist"?
And no, it's not full of pics from porn mags.

Also, another oldie but goody is G. Edward Griffin's investigative presentation from 1969, "The Capitalist Conspiracy".

Have you seen it?

If you have not seen it, you can at this link below. If you have time to open your mind for a couple of hours. Any fan of Dr. Paul and the Daily Paul will enjoy it.

Now I ask you, was the formation of the Federal Reserve a conspiracy?

And truly, who is a Capitalist Conspirator?
And who is a Conspiracy Theorist?

Don't give up on your positions and beliefs, yet please remember...

There is no Left vs. Right, only Tyranny vs. Freedom!
